Founded in 1837, Caffe Cordina is a well-known, established family business with a long history.
From its humble beginnings as a confectionery in Bormla, it has become the prestigious coffee shop it is today thanks to the foresight, daring and hard work of the late Cesare Cordina, when he relocated to Valletta in 1944.
Situated in a beautiful, historic palazzo with an exquisite interior, Cesare Cordina enlarged the coffee shop over the years to include a restaurant, tea room, pasticceria, coffee bar and gelateria.
Caffe Cordina produces its own hand-made, traditional sweets and pastries in-house and also has a line of gourmet products, which can be purchased from the caffe in Valletta, Malta International Airport, as well as selected outlets in Malta and Gozo.
Cesare Cordina was also a pioneer in the outside catering business, which has had an esteemed reputation for the past 40 years. The family continues to maintain the same high standard of quality, excellent service and innovation that Cesare would be proud of.
